Cold Steel 88SCFA Aluminum Head Sword Cane - Carbon Fiber Shaft
The ability to protect yourself is one of the main virtues of Sword Canes. This is the most elegant, yet understated, sword cane that Cold Steel offers. It closely resembles their popular City Stick, with a removable highly polished Aluminum head. It features a tough fiberglass carbon fiber composite shaft that can be used as an effective self-defense tool in its own right, or in tandem with the blade in one hand and this in the other. Its blade is light and fast in the hand, and has a tapered square cross section with a sharp point.
It is your responsibility to determine if sword canes are legal to purchase where you live. Absolutely no shipments outside of the United States.

A Word About Cold Steel's Sword Canes
I've been collecting antique, as well as contemporary, sword canes and walking sticks for the past 35+ years. And lucky for me, they all look the same to my wife, so it's been easy to add one here and there. My budding collection is highlighted by one peculiar English sword cane from the mid-1800's with the most unusual feature of a special repository for poison in the blade. I guess the gentleman who commissioned it long ago felt that if his adversary got away, the poison would finish the job later. Having the appreciation I do for quality sword canes from around the world, I must say that I am more than pleased with these offerings from Cold Steel. Now do not let the great prices fool you into thinking that these are not first class sword canes -- as they easily equal (or even surpass) sword canes that I've spent several times as much for.
